The 1960s

While the 1970s represents the initial impact of Latin American Liberation Theology on the world, as well as the birth of so many other Theologies of Liberation (particularly the Feminist Liberation and Black Liberation theology of North America), and the 1980s represents, perhaps it’s high-watermark of sustained repression, martyrdom, and fruitfulness, the 1960s is the decade of the first reflections that would use the rubric of “liberation” to say something new and worthwhile against the backdrop of debates of development, dependency, human rights, socialism, democracy, faith and society, urbanization/globalization, the role of the church, ecumenism, Vatican II, indigenismo, enculturation, popular religion, conscientization, and the realidad of poverty.
